Prescription Sleeping Pills And Fire Alarms

An article regarding the problem faced by persons on prescription sleeping pills who may not be woken up by a fire alarm.

Whilst the researchers are trialling an alternative sleeping medication, there is obviously an opportunity for someone enterprising to develop an electronic solution.

Some form of vibrating wrist band similar to a Fitbit which either detects the sound of the fire alarm, or works in conjunction with a modified fire alarm which transmits a wireless signal as well as the audible alarm.

It would also be useful for hearing impaired persons.
